The head of the NFL Players Association, DeMaurice Smith, said that a strike or lockout is eminent come 2021. You get a really strong sense that there is a big rift between the players and the league right now.
Hugh said there is so much turnover in the NFL that the league can win this one again. The only guys that can win in this situation are the ones with the big contracts; not the younger guys.
Smith is the same guy that got the players their current deal. Is this really a guy you want back to battle for you?
